General Information 


Catholic Theological Union was founded in 1967 as a creative response 
to the call sounded by Vatican II for a renewed theological education for 
priesthood. Three religious orders originally sponsored the school: the 
Franciscans of Sacred Heart Province, the Servites of the Eastern U.S. 
Province, and the Passionists of Holy Cross Province. The school was 
granted corporate status by the State of Illinois in November, 1967. Classes 
began in the fall quarter of 1968, with a faculty of 24 and an enrollment 
of 108. In January, 1972, Catholic Theological Union was accredited by 
the American Association of Theological Schools. The North Central 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools granted accreditation in 
March, 1972. 

Since its founding, other religious communities have designated Catholic 
Theological Union as their official theologate: the Augustinians (1968), 
the Norbertines (1968), the Cincinnati Province and Kansas City Province 
of the Society of the Precious Blood (1969), the Missionaries of the Sacred 
Heart (1969), the Society of the Divine Word (1970), the Eastern Province 
of the Congregation of the Holy Ghost (1971), the Claretians (1972), the 
Viatorians (1972), the Xaverian Missionaries (1973), the Crosiers (1974), 
the Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus (1976), the Pontifical 
Institute for Foreign Missions (1976), the St. Nicholas Diocese in Chicago 

for Ukrainian Catholics (1978), the Sacred Heart Fathers and Brothers 
(1979), the Assumption Province of the Franciscans (1980), the 
Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament (1980), the St. Paul of the Cross 
Province of the Passionists (1981), the Capuchins (1982), the St. John the 
Baptist Province of the Franciscans (1982), the Society of St. Columban 
(1984), the Redemptorist Fathers and Brothers (1984), the Central United 
States Province of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (1985), 
the Western Province of the Congregation of the Holy Ghost (1985), the 
Oratorians (1987), the Maryknoll Missionaries (1988), the St. John the 
Baptist Province of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (1988), 
and the St. Bonaventure Province of the Franciscan Conventuals ( 1 988) . 

Catholic Theological Union is unique among schools of theology and 
seminaries. It is not a coalition of independent schools. Rather, the 
participating orders have closed their individual theologates and merged 
their resources into one school, with one administration and faculty. 
Control is vested in the Board of Trustees. The school has the advantage 
of unity of administration and breadth of tradition and support and has 
been accepted by its peers in the world of theological education. 

Catholic Theological Union is now the largest Roman Catholic school 
of theology in the United States, serving thirty provinces and abbeys of 
religious men as an official theologate. It also serves other students, lay 
and religious, in the preparation for ministry. One out of every six religious 
priesthood candidates in the United States is trained at Catholic 
Theological Union. 

There is a living sense of purpose which guides a school more effectively 
than any written statement. From the very beginning, it was understood 
that Catholic Theological Union would be a school of ministry. Theology 
would be directed to practice. The by-laws concisely stated this objective: 
to train and teach aspirants to the Roman Catholic priesthood so that 
they may be fully qualified to meet the requirements of such priesthood. 

As a school grows, a periodic review of its purposes is necessary. In 
1980, Catholic Theological Union reviewed its goals and adopted a new 
Mission Statement: 

Catholic Theological Union at Chicago is a school of ministry in the Roman Catholic 
tradition, begun in 1968 by a number of religious communities of men who combined 
resources in order to educate more creatively for priesthood. Today that founding vision 
embraces preparation for many forms of public ministry in the Church from ordained 
priesthood to lay ministries. Catholic Theological Union accepts qualified men and 
women who show vocational commitment and seek graduate ministerial education. 

The community life of the school reflects the influence of the religious institutes 
which founded and sponsor the school. Thus inclusion, mutuality and participation 
mark the ecclesial context of the entire educational program. Within this context 
students live, grow and experience formation in faith and ministry. It also provides 
the impetus for the school's strong emphasis on mission, justice, nd the cross-cultural 
dynamics of ministry in the modern world and in a global chur n, Membership in the 
Association of Chicago Theological Schools and cooperation vwth the Divinity School 

of the University of Chicago offer opportunities for ecumenical participation in the 
preparation for ministry and for academic research in theology. 

Catholic Theological Union possesses a rich variety of academic and pastoral 
resources. These enable it to educate capable ministers for the present and future church. 

The central focus of Catholic Theological Union is the priesthood 
candidate. In the spirit of the Program of Priestly Formation, the school 
has adapted its programs to the present needs of Church and society. 
Today, such adaptation involves an additional commitment to education 
for the wide variety of ministries emerging in the church, for women and 
men, religious and lay, as well as continuing education for those already 
involved in ministry, both ordained and non-ordained. One third of 
Catholic Theological Union's current students are among those preparing 
for such ministries or are in programs of continuing education for their 
current ministries. 


Catholic Theological Union is located in Hyde Park on Chicago's south 
side. This is a cosmopolitan, stably integrated community, with a strong 
sense of identity. Within walking distance are shopping centers, theatres, 
restaurants, churches, parks, the Lake Michigan beaches and the Museum 
of Science and Industry. Downtown Chicago is fifteen minutes away by 
car or rapid transit. More importantly, Catholic Theological Union is 
close to the Divinity School of the University of Chicago and to several 

schools of theology in the area: Chicago Theological Seminary, Lutheran 
School of Theology, Meadville/Lombard Theological School, and 
McCormick Theological Seminary. 


Catholic Theological Union occupies three buildings on Cornell Avenue. 
Five floors of the ten-story building at 5401 South Cornell Avenue provide 
space for classrooms, administrative and faculty offices, library, dining 
and lounge facilities, meeting rooms and audio-visual laboratory. 
Additional faculty office and classroom facilities are located in the buildings 
at 5326 and 5420 South Cornell. The school also rents classroom space 
from the Chicago Sinai Congregation on 54th Street. 

Five floors of living quarters for some of the religious communities of 
men are located at 5401 South Cornell Avenue. Living quarters for other 
students are located in the 5326 and 5420 buildings. Both efficiency and 
one-bedroom apartments are available. 


The Catholic Theological Union Library contains 107,000 volumes, 
providing resources for study and research by students and faculty 
members. It currently receives over 540 periodicals. In addition to the 
general theological holdings, the library has special collections in mission 
studies, history of religions and homiletics. 

The Association of Chicago Theological Schools' libraries, one of the 
largest theological bibliographical resources in the Western hemisphere, 
consisting of more than 1,200,000 volumes in theology and allied fields, 
are available to students enrolled in CTU. A courier service circulates 
books and periodicals for inter-library loans. 

Membership in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools, the 
Illinois Library Computer System Organization, the Illinois Regional 
Library System, and the On-line Catalog Library Cooperative allows 
library patrons access to other library resources in the city of Chicago, 
the state of Illinois, and the rest of the nation. 


From its earliest days, Chicago has been a major cosmopolitan center, 
with its many neighborhoods representing a wide variety of racial and 
ethnic groups, as well as a broad spectrum of cultural and religious 

In recent years, Chicago has also become one of the largest centers of 
theological education in the world. Its twelve seminaries, with over three 

thousand students and three hundred faculty, make Chicago an unequalled 
resource for the study of theology and ministry. 

Catholic Theological Union enjoys a variety of collaborative 
relationships with the other theological institutions of the city, through 
two distinctive but interlocking consortia. 

The school works closely wtih four other institutions in Hyde Park, who 
together form the Committee on Academic Cooperation in Hyde Park. The other 
institutions are the Chicago Theological Seminary (United Church of 
Christ), Lutheran School of Theology, Meadville/Lombard Theological 
School (Unitarian/Universalist Association), and McCormick Theological 
Seminary (Presbyterian Church, USA). The Committee works to develop 
coordinated and joint programming as well as other academic services to 
students and faculty. Noteworthy among those efforts is the Ecumenical 
Hispanic Resources Committee, which coordinates resources for 
theological education for the Hispanic communities. 

The Association of Chicago Theological Schools represents another form of 
collaboration. Its membership includes the five Hyde Park schools; 
Bethany Theological Seminary (Church of the Brethren) and Northern 
Baptist Theological Seminary, both located in the western suburbs; and 
five northside schools, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary (United 
Methodist), North Park Theological Seminary (Evangelical Covenant), 
Saint Mary of the Lake University (Roman Catholic), Seabury-Western 
Theological Seminary (Episcopal), and Trinity-Evangelical Divinity 
School (Evangelical Free Church). The Association fosters student cross- 
registration, coordination of library access and acquisitions, faculty 
discussion, and communication among the schools. It offers to the 3500 
students in its twelve schools more than one thousand courses annually 
and library collections in excess of 1.2 million volumes, with nearly five 
thousand currently received periodical subscriptions. Further information 
on the Association may be found in the current edition of its Announcements. 

The participating institutions in each of these groups maintain 
educational autonomy and grant their own degrees. Each school also 
preserves its confessional identity and theological traditions. Catholic 
Theological Union's participation follows the guidelines set down in the 
Ecumenical Directory of the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity and 
in the Program of Priestly Formation of the National Conference of Catholic 

Students may enroll in courses in any of these twelve schools without 
additional tuition or registration charge upon approval of their academic 
advisor and the Registrar. They enjoy library privileges in these schools, 
with no charge. 


Catholic Theological Union is located near the campus of the University 
of Chicago, one of the great research institutions in the world. Its Divinity 
School is renowned for historical research and the preparation of teaching 

A special plan of biregistration permits its students to register for courses 
in the University at a substantial reduction of tuition. 

By special arrangement, certain M.Div. students may pursue a 
coordinated sequence of study whereby they may receive the M.Div. degree 
from Catholic Theological Union and the Ph.D. degree thereafter from 
the University of Chicago's Divinity School. Details on this arrangement 
may be found in the M.Div. /Ph.D. section of the catalog. 


In 1968 the Jewish Chautauqua Society established a resident 
lectureship in Judaism at Catholic Theological Union for the purpose of 
providing offerings in Jewish studies in the curriculum. Hayim Goren 
Perelmuter, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation K.A.M. Isaish Israel and 
past President of the Chicago Board of Rabbis, has served as Chautauqua 
Professor of Jewish Studies at Catholic Theological Union under this 
endowment since 1968. 

The Northern Province of the Society of the Divine Word established 
the Divine Word Scholar-in-Residence in 1976 to bring qualified persons 
from the Third World to lecture at Catholic Theological Union. These 
lecturers offer courses for one or more quarters during the academic year. 
Other participating communities at Catholic Theological Union have 
periodically endowed visiting lectureships to enrich the offerings in the 
school's curriculum. 


STAUROS International is an ecumenical, international, non-profit 
association which promotes studies and programs on specific areas of 
human suffering from a religious point of view. 

STAUROS was founded in 1972. The central international office is 
located in Louvain, Belgium, with other offices established in Europe, and 
Central and South America. The U.S. office was located at Catholic 
Theological Union in 1981. 

STAUROS activities include: publication of the bi-monthly Stauros 
Notebook which presents articles and resource material on suffering drawn 
from Scripture, theology, other disciplines and personal histories. It 
produces a specialized bibliography on publications (English and 


European) from different disciplines on suffering, issues scholarly Bulletins, 
conducts International and National Congresses and Symposiums, 
promotes and supports writings which advance its purposes, and conducts 
workshops and retreats on suffering and the mystery of Redemption. The 
Chicago office has specialized in advocacy on behalf of and with disabled 

Rev. Flavian Dougherty, C.P., is Executive Director of the U.S. 
STAUROS Office. 


Fees and Financial Aid 

All tuition and fees are subject to annual review and change. Current 
rates for tuition and other fees can be found in an insert appended to the 


Payment of tuition and fees is due within the first thirty days of each 
quarter. Housing is billed monthly. Late payment is subject to a 1% 
penalty per month on the unpaid balance. Students may request special 
payment plans; in such cases, they must contact the Comptroller at the

for the following quarter on a conditional basis only; unpaid balances may 
not be carried past the following quarter or into the next academic year. 
Catholic Theological Union reserves the right to withhold registration, 
library privileges, transfer of credits, diplomas and transcripts until all

The cost of education at Catholic Theological Union may exceed the 
financial resources of some students. The school offers financial aid to 
offset some of these costs. This aid is available to students who are 
undertaking degree programs and is given in the form of tuition remission 
grants. The school also assists students in applying for Federal loans for 
graduate level study. In addition, there are opportunities for student 

Returning students wishing to apply for aid should file an application 
with the Dean of Students and Community Services prior to May 1st each 


year. Matriculating students should file an application 60 days prior to 
the beginning of the quarter. 

Students who are engaged in ministry at the same time that they are 
pursuing full- or part-time study should consult the Dean of Students and 
Community Services for information on several "partnership" aid 


Student Life 

The Dean of Students and Comunity Services is the administration's 
representative for matters of student life at Catholic Theological Union. 
The Dean of Students and Community Services works with the Student 
Executive Committee and the Formation Council and serves as liaison 
person between these bodies and the administration. The Dean serves to 
facilitate networking among the various communities and individuals who 
comprise the Catholic Theological Union. 

The Student Services Office offers a broad range of assistance to CTU 
students and personnel. It provides information on spiritual direction and 
counseling resources, as well as on CTU financial aid, government loans, 
job placement, health insurance and immigration forms. This office also 
handles housing contracts for independent students. It acts as a 
clearinghouse in the scheduling and publicizing of school events. The 
office maintains liaison with the University of Chicago Health service and 
recreation facilities. 

These services and others are detailed in the Catholic Theological Union 
Student Handbook, available from the Dean of Students and Community 



The basic organ of student opinion and action at Catholic Theological 
Union is the Student Executive Committee. The SEC coordinates various 
areas of student responsibility and participation in Catholic Theological 
Union life. Through its representatives on the CTU Senate, on the Student 
Affairs Committee of the Board of Trustees, and on the principal school 
committees, the SEC communicates student viewpoints on issues of school 
policy and direction. Representatives of the participating communities 
and of the independent students compose the SEC; additionally, those 
students appointed to the various school committees serve on this body. 
A president and vice-president elected by the entire student body head 
the SEC. The Student Executive Committee represents the students in 
matters dealing with the faculty and administration, as well as student 
concerns in the other schools of the Association of Chicago Theological 
Schools. The SEC works closely with the Dean of Students and Community 


The directors of spiritual formation of all the participating communities 
at Catholic Theological Union and the Dean of Students compose the 
Formation Council. The Council serves as a forum through which the 
directors share insights and experiences regarding spiritual formation. In 
certain instances the Formation Council may agree upon common policies 
in matters which affect the religious well-being of the student body, and 
in particular of the students from the participating religious communities, 
and make recommendations to the administration. Liaison with the faculty 
is effected by attendance of members at faculty meetings and representation 
on the various faculty committees. The Formation Council also places 
two representatives on the Catholic Theological Union Senate. 


The participating communities of Catholic Theological Union generally 
provide resources in the area of counseling and spiritual direction for their 
student members. For independent students, referral for counseling and 
spiritual direction is available through the office of the Dean of Students 
and Community Services. 

In the matter of academic guidance, each student, upon being admitted 
to the school, is assigned an academic advisor. 

Each of the participating communities celebrates daily liturgies in which 
all students are welcome. Additionally, Catholic Theological Union 
sponsors all-school liturgies several times per quarter. These celebrations 
are important features of the school's life as a faith community. 



Participating communities at the Catholic Theological Union generally 
provide housing for their own students. Housing for independent students 
is available at 5326 and 5420 South Cornell. Students desiring to lease 
the efficiency or one-bedroom units in these buildings should make 
application through the Dean of Students and Community Services. 
Housing requests should be made as soon as possible after admission to 
the school and not later than 30 days prior to the begining of the quarter. 
If Catholic Theological Union housing is unavailable, the Dean of Students 
and Community Services will assist the student in searching for other 
suitable accommodations. 

Several of the participating communities of men have their residence 
in 5401 South Cornell. From time to time a limited number of rooms in 
this building may be available to other students. These rooms do not have 
kitchen facilities. Inquiries as to availability of rooms in the 5401 building 
should be directed to the Dean of Students and should be received at least 
30 days prior to the beginning of a quarter. 

Catholic Theological Union has a cafeteria-style food service which is 
open to all school personnel. Meals may be purchased on a quarterly 
contract or meal-ticket plan. Residents in 5401 are required to be on the 
food service. 

Housing and food service prices are subject to periodic review and 
change. Current charges may be ascertained through inquiry to the Dean 
of Students. 


Recreational facilities are available nearby as well as throughout the 
city. At a short distance from the school, the majestic Lake Michigan 
shoreline provides an apt setting for meditation, walking, jogging, and 
cycling. Beaches and parks for studying, sunning, picnicking and general 
enjoyment are all within a few blocks. Golf is available in nearby Jackson 
Park; tennis courts can be found at Jackson Park as well as close-at-hand 
Cornell Park. Indoor facilities in the area offer opportunities for swimming, 
racquetball, tennis and fitness exercise. On payment of an annual fee, 
Catholic Theological Union students are eligible to use the University of 
Chicago's extensive athletic facilities. 


General Regulations 


Catholic Theological Union, as a school for ministry in the Roman 
Catholic tradition, aims at providing quality education for persons 
interested in ministry. Consequently, all its programs are open to all 
serious and qualified students, male and female, who wish to prepare 
themselves for ministries in this tradition. 

Pre-Theological Study 

Pre-theological studies have been the object of extensive research and 
consultation in recent years. Both the Program of Priestly Formation and the 
Association of Theological Schools have outlined in broad, flexible 
guidelines the kinds of foundational understandings the entering student 
ought to have in areas such as human life, culture, religion, and skills of 
thought, communication, and language. Catholic Theological Union 
concurs with these statements and has adapted its admission requirements 
and recommendations to their spirit. 


General Admission Requirements 

The following are requisite for general admission to Catholic Theological 

— A bachelor's degree or its equivalent from an approved college or 

— A completed application form. The application form may be obtained 
from the Admissions Office. Applications from students of 
participating communities are due April 15. Applications from all 
other students are due six weeks prior to the quarter in which students 
plan to enter Catholic Theological Union. Late applications will be 
accepted, but no guarantee can be given of admission processing in 
time to begin the following quarter. In such cases, students may be 
admitted conditionally at the discretion of the Admissions Committee. 

— Payment of the matriculation fee to the Admissions Office. 

— Submission of official copies of all college transcripts to the Admissions 

— Letters of Recommendation. 

Application for a degree and for a certificate in pastoral studies: three 

— In the case of priests and deacons or members of religious institutes 
which are not participating communities of Catholic Theological 
Union, one of these letters must be from an official representative 
of their diocese or institute. 

— Applicants from Catholic Theological Union's participating 
communities need not submit letters, since permission from a 
participating community constitutes adequate recommendation. 
If the community withdraws its sponsorship, Catholic Theological 
Union reserves the right to request the three letters and to 
reconsider continuation of status. 

Application for continuing education and special student status: 
one letter. 

— This letter must come from someone who can testify to the 
applicant's ability to undertake graduate study in ministerial 

— Generally, persons already engaged in ministry who are seeking 
further professionalization and updating but are not choosing 
another degree program enroll under the rubric of continuing 


— Special student status is normally reserved to those who have not 
yet decided on a degree program or who are enrolling for a specific 
and closely defined objective such as courses for initial formation 
purposes or cross-cultural mission preparation. Renewal of special 
student status beyond one year is contingent upon the 
recommendation of instructors at Catholic Theological Union 
and review by the Admissions Committee. 

Catholic Theological Union reserves the right to require personal 
interviews with an admissions officer and to require screening tests of 

Admission to Catholic Theological Union does not constitute admission to degree 
candidacy. Specific requirements for candidacy in the various degree programs are 
listed under the descriptions of those programs elsewhere in this catalogue. 


Student Classification 

Students are admitted to degree candidacy after completion of admission 
requirements of the respective degree and after two quarters of study. 

Students not requesting admission to degrees, certificates, or continuing 
education status are classified as special students and may hold this status 
on a one year, renewable basis. 

Students enrolling for at least nine hours per quarter are classified as 
full-time students. All others are part-time students. 


Registration takes place in advance of the quarter on the dates 
announced in the academic calendar. Late registration is allowed on the 
dates so designated in the calendar. Registration after these dates cannot 
be guaranteed. 

Changes in Registration 

Changes in registration are allowed through the first week of the quarter. 
Thereafter the course will appear on the transcript with a grade or 
designation of withdrawal: WP - withdrew passing; WF - withdrew failing. 

Class Schedule and Course Load 

Catholic Theological Union operates on the quarter system, with three 
eleven-week quarters per year. Most courses are offered for three quarter 


credit hours, and meet one hundred fifty minutes per week for ten weeks, 
with the eleventh week for study and examinations. Classes are scheduled 
Monday through Thursday during the day. Evening courses and some 
weekend intensives are also offered. 

The normal course load is four courses (twelve credit hours) per quarter. 
With the permission of their academic advisor, students may register for 
an additional course. 

Course offerings are arranged so that one may pursue an M.T.S. or 
M.A. degree in most areas of concentration completely by means of evening 
courses. The sequence of these courses is scheduled on a two-year cycle. 

Grading and Standards of Progress 

Grades are given at the end of each quarter and published by the 
Registrar. The student's academic advisor keeps a progressive checklist 
of regular advancement toward completion of hour and area requirements. 

Catholic Theological Union uses the letter grade system, and also the 
pass-fail system for some courses. Grades are given and computed 
according to the following schedule: 




four quality points 




three quality points 




two quality points 




one quality points 




no quality points 















PI = Permanent Incomplete 

Students must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative quality point average 
in a degree program in order to graduate. Students falling below this 
cumulative average for two consecutive quarters are subject to probation. 
Students failing to show improvement are subject to dismissal unless there 
are extenuating circumstances. 

Catholic Theological Union reserves the right to dismiss students whose 
academic progress or whose adjustment to the school is unsatisfactory. 
Students dismissed for poor scholarship cannot be readmitted to the degree 



Students may withdraw from any course up to the end of the seventh 
week of the quarter if permission of their advisor is obtained. They must 
follow the procedures outlined by the Registrar's Office. The grade "WP" 
or "WF" will be entered on their transcript for courses from which they 
have withdrawn. 


Instructors may allow students an extension of time to complete 
coursework up to the end of the fifth week of the next quarter. If work is 
not completed by that time, the instructor will award either an "F" or a 
"PI" for the course. In those instances, no credit will be given for the 
course. The course may be repeated, provided that the student registers 
and pays tuition according to the normal procedures of the school. 


No credit is given for a course in which a student received an "F". If 
the course is required, it must be successfully completed before taking 
courses for which it is a prerequisite or before graduation. 

Transfer of Credit 

Previously earned graduate credit in theology may be transferred to 
Catholic Theological Union. Ordinarily, no more than nine hours may 
be transferred into M.A. and M.T.S. programs. No credits from courses 
graded below "C" can be transferred. These credits will be recognized 
only after the student has successfully completed one year of academic 
work at Catholic Theologial Union. Forms for requesting transfer of credit 
may be obtained in the Registrar's Office. 

Advanced Standing 

Students entering M.Div. and M.T.S. programs may petition to receive 
advanced standing for previous work done in foundational areas. If the 
petition is granted, hours in those foundational areas then become elective. 
Petitions for advanced standing are to be directed to the Office of the 
Dean after admission to Catholic Theological Union. 

Credit by Examination 

Credit by examination may be sought in many foundational areas and 
in select advanced areas in the M.Div. and M.T.S. programs. Procedures 



for seeking credit by examination are outlined in the M.T.S. and M.Div. 

Credit by Cross-Registration 

Students enrolled at Catholic Theological Union enjoy the possibility 
of enrolling in a number of other Chicago theological schools. They may 
enroll (at no additional tuition charge) at any of the other eleven member 
schools of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools (Bethany 
Theological Seminary, Chicago Theological Seminary, Garrett- 
Evangelical Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology, 
McCormick Theological Seminary, Meadville/Lombard Theological 
School, North Park Theological Seminary, Northern Baptist Theological 
Seminary, St. Mary of the Lake University, Seabury-Western Theological 
Seminary, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.) 

Catholic Theological Union enjoys a relationship whereby its students 
may also enroll in courses at the University of Chicago with significant 
reduction in tuition. Details may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 

Credit for courses taken in the schools mentioned above may be applied 
toward Catholic Theological Union degree requirements. Up to one-third 
of a student's work may be done in these schools, and by special 
arrangement this may be increased to one-half.

Academic Programs 

The Catholic Theological Union Curriculum 

Catholic Theological Union's stated purpose is to be a school for 
ministry, preparing persons to minister in the Roman Catholic tradition. 
First and foremost this means graduate theological education and 
ministerial preparation for the priesthood. It also includes preparation for 
the variety of ministries now already part of or still emerging within the 
Roman Catholic Church. 

As a school for ministry, its curricular model is one of compentency- 
based education, committed to academic and professional excellence. For 
Catholic Theological Union, competency-based education means: 

— a student-centered (rather than content-centered) educational 
process aiming at the integration of the student's knowledge and 

— the development within the student of the Catholic religious 

— an adequate understanding of a variety of frameworks and 
methodologies for interpreting that heritage; 

— an increasing ability to communicate that heritage effectively in 
varying ministerial contexts. 


This educational process is broadened by the larger awareness of the 
cultural pluralism of the contemporary world, provided by Catholic 
Theological Union's international student body and program of World 
Mission. It takes place within the ecumenical context of the Association 
of Chicago Theological Schools. The process is strengthened by the school's 
tradition of critical inquiry and broad humanistic study. 

More specific curricular objectives are given with each of the degree 


Aim of the Program 

Catholic Theological Union's Master of Divinity degree is a graduate 
professional program. The M.Div. degree attests that its bearer has 
achieved a level of competency and proficiency in selected areas and skills 
to be ordained to the priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church. 

The M.Div. program combines theological education, guided ministerial 
experience, and structures for integrative reflection. As the first professional 
degree for candidates for the priesthood, its aim is generalist in nature, 
while allowing for some specialization within its broad framework. It is 
concerned not only with the appropriation of the Catholic tradition, but 
also its effective communication. It seeks to prepare candidates for 
leadership in a pluralist world in a variety of ministerial contexts. 

The M.Div. program seeks to implement faithfully the guidelines of the 
1981 Program of Priestly Formation of the National Conference of Catholic 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements outlined above, the 
following requirements are normally prerequisite for admission to the 
M.Div. program: 

— fifteen semester hours of philosophy. These should provide 
adequate exposure to the major historical periods of philosophical 
thought. Other recommended areas are philosophical 
anthropology, epistemology, and metaphysics. 

— three semester hours in sociology. 

— six semester hours in psychology. Experimental psychology and 
personality theory are recommended. 

— Students intending to come to Catholic Theological Union would 
be well advised to consider other areas important for ministry: e.g., 
the classical roots of their own cultures and traditions, languages 


such as Latin and Greek, and skills such as speech and 
communication arts. 

Program Requirements 

The M.Div. consists of 135 quarter credit hours and the M.Div. 
Professional Resume\ These can usually be completed in eleven quarters 
of work, and must be completed within seven years. M.Div. candidates 
must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade average. Further regulations may 
be found in the M.Div. Manual.

The M.Div. Professional Resume 

The M.Div. Professional Resume is an important part of the 
competency-based model of preparation for ministry. It is a 


progressively completed dossier of materials attesting to the ministerial 
skills and competencies which the student has attained. Its cumulative 
character seeks to aid the student in the personal integration of 
knowledge and skills, as well as the effective communication of what 
has been experienced and learned. Completion of the Professional 
Resume marks the completion of the M.Div. program. 

The materials in the Resume include: 

— A Pastoral Mission Statement 

— Certification in three areas of pastoral competency: 



Pastoral Counseling 

— Evaluations from ministry supervisors 

— A case history from a situation in which the student has served 

— Transcript of grades and courses completed 

— Other materials the student may wish to include, for example, 
evaluations from people served in ministry. 

Further information for the M.Div. Professional Resume is contained 
in the M.Div. Manual. 

Language Requirement 

There is no language requirement as such for the M.Div. degree. 
However, language competency may be required for admission to some 

Administration and Further Regulations 

The M.Div. program is administered by Rev. Robert Moosbrugger, 
O.M.I., Acting M.Div. Director, to whom inquiries should be 
addressed. Regulations and procedures regarding the M.Div. degree 
are contained in the M.Div. Manual. 

Aim of the Program 

The purpose of Catholic Theological Union's program for the Master 
of Arts in Theology is multidimensional. The program is designed, within 
the resources of Catholic Theological Union, the Association of Chicago 
Theological Schools and the Divinity School of the University of Chicago, 
to provide the theological background for those who wish to prepare for 
entrance into a doctoral program in theology, to teach religion at a 
secondary or college level, or to develop a basic competence in the area 
of theological studies though their principal specialization lies elsewhere. 


The M.A. program is marked by flexibility, allowing for a wide variety 
of individually tailored programs. When they apply for admission to the 
program, normally by the middle of the quarter preceding admission, the 
candidates choose the objective(s) which best meet their needs. Before 
registering for M.A. course work they meet with their M.A. advisor to 
work out the details of a program designed to help achieve the objective(s) 
chosen. The M.A. advisor will help students evaluate their progress and 
decide on any modifications which might be advisable. 

The M.A. in theology is not routinely granted en route to the M.Div., 
but may be pursued concurrent with the M.Div. It is open to those who 
wish to gain theological background for work other than the priestly 

Once the prerequisites have been met, the M.A. program will usually 
take two years (one year of course work plus the time needed for the thesis 
and the comprehensive examinations). It must be completed within seven 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements, candidates for the 
M.A. in theology must have completed 18 semester hours or 27 quarter 
hours of university or seminary level theology. This latter requirement 
can be fulfilled by study in foundational areas at CTU or by an 
undergraduate major in theology or religious studies from an accredited 
college, university or seminary, provided that the Dean, in consultation 
with the M.A. Director and appropriate faculty members, judges this to 
be equivalent. To enter advanced level courses in the Department of 
Biblical Literature and Languages the M.A. candidates must have taken 
B 300 and 305 or their equivalent. Other prerequisites for specific areas 
of specialization may be required by the Dean, in consultation with the 
M.A. Director and appropriate faculty members. 

Program Requirements 

The M.A. program requirements consist of courses, language 
certification, comprehensive examinations, and thesis. 

Course Requirements 

Thirty-six quarter hours (12 courses) of course work are required. The 
candidate must maintain a "B" (3.0) average. There will be automatic 
dismissal from the program for any grade below a "C" or for more than 
two "C's". The course work shall be divided as follows: 

1. Eight advanced level courses in the student's area of specialization 
(e.g., scripture, systematic theology, ethics, etc.) 24 hours 


2. Two advanced level courses in each of two other 

theological disciplines 12 hours 

Up to one-third of the courses may be taken in other approved schools. 
By special arrangement with the M.A. board, this may be increased to 

Comprehensive Examinations 

Part of the requirements for the M.A. in theology is a two-part 
comprehensive examination in which the candidates are to demonstrate 
their grasp of theological methodologies and the content of the disciplines 
included within the scope of their program. The content and approach 
for which the student will be responsible in the comprehensives is 
determined by students and their board of examiners within the general 
prescriptions of the M.A. program. A student may take the comprehensive 
examination two times; upon receipt of a petition from the student, the 
comprehensive board may allow a third attempt. 


As the final requirement for the M.A. in theology, candidates must 
demonstrate the ability to do competent work in their field by writing a 
thesis characterized by research and independent thought. The thesis shall 
be seventy-five to one hundred twenty-five pages in length and conform 
to one of the manuals of style approved by Catholic Theological Union. 

Language Requirement 

A reading knowledge of one modern foreign language is required for 
all candidates for the M.A. degree. The choice will be limited ordinarily 
to French or German. In addition, those specializing in historical and 
doctrinal studies will be required normally to demonstrate a reading 
knowledge of Latin, and those specializing in scripture will be required 
to demonstrate a reading knowledge of Greek and Hebrew. Language 
competence shall be demonstrated as early as possible within the program. 

Final Recommendation 

The M.A. Director will determine the candidate's cumulative grade, 
based on course work (one-half), comprehensive examination (one- 
quarter), and thesis (one-quarter). An appropriate recommendation will 
then be made to the Dean and Faculty for the conferring of the degree of 
Master of Arts in Theology. 


Administration and Further Regulations 

The M.A. program is administered by Rev. John T. Pawlikowski, 
O.S.M., M.A. Director. Inquiries concerning the program should be 
directed to his office. Further regulations for the M.A. program are 
contained in the M.A. Manual. 


Aim of the Program 

The Master of Theological Studies (M.T.S.) aims to provide the students 
with a general theological understanding as a context within which they 
will also develop selected pastoral skills and competencies. The degree 
program offers two distinct tracks for students, the choice of one dependent 
upon student needs. 

Building upon previous ministerial experience, Track I of the M.T.S. 
provides (1) education in the foundational areas of theological disciplines; 
(2) a focus for developing selected pastoral skills; (3) an integration of 
these skills within the framework of a general theological understanding. 
Track I of the M.T.S. is intended for persons who have had some 
ministerial experience and who wish to prepare for new ministries or to 
enhance their effectiveness in their current ministry. Concretely Track I 
of the M.T.S. is envisioned for sisters, brothers, deacons, lay persons, or 
priests who wish an additional theological focus. 

Track II of the M.T.S. is intended for persons who have had no 
supervised ministerial experience and who seek an education in the 
theological disciplines with a focus toward developing and integrating 
pastoral skills for ministry. 

While the M.T.S. draws upon the same resources as do the M.A. and 
M.Div. degrees, and shares aspects of their objectives and design, it is 
nonetheless distinct in its focus and relationship to these programs. 

As a degree which provides not only general theological understanding 
but also specific ministerial skills and competencies, the M.T.S. is basically 
different in orientation from the research M.A. degree, and so cannot be 
pursued concurrently with the M.A. degree. 

The M.T.S. represents a more limited range of pastoral skills for ministry 
than does the generalist M.Div. degree. For that reason, i' does not qualify 
the candidate for ordination to priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church. 
Work done in the M.T.S. program, however, can be applied toward the 
M.Div. degree, although the two programs cannot be pursued 


Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admissions requirements, at least three years 
of experience involving the communication of religious values to others 
are also required. Some background in theology, philosophy, psychology, 
sociology and religious studies is recommended. The adequacy of this 
background will be determined according to the student's specific program. 

Program Requirements 

The equivalent of two full-time academic years (72 quarter credit hours) 
is required for the M.T.S. degree. Advanced standing and transfer of 
credit may be granted for previous theological study, to be applied to the 
foundational areas of the M.T.S. Decisions on advanced standing and 
transfer of credit are based upon transcript evaluation and student 
interview. Candidates must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade average. The 
program must be completed within seven years. 

Track I 

Specific hour requirements fall into three areas: foundational, 
theological/pastoral, and integrative areas. 

Foundational Areas: 21 hours 

The foundational areas are meant to provide some grounding in 
the major theological disciplines. They consist of twenty-one hours. 
Equivalency may be granted for this work if similar work has been 
done on an advanced level (i.e., upper level college or at another 
theological school). Work in the foundational areas must be 
completed during the first year of residency. The foundational areas 

Introduction to the Old Testament 3 hours 

Introduction to the New Testament 3 hours 

History of Early Christianity 3 hours 

Introduction to Theology 3 hours 

Introduction to Christian Ethics 3 hours 

Introduction to Social Ethics 3 hours 

Sacraments: Theology and Celebration 3 hours 

Theological/ Pastoral Areas: 42 hours 

The theological/pastoral areas provide work in selected areas of 
pastoral skills within the context of further theological 
understanding. Forty-two hours are required in this area, to be 


distributed in the following manner: 

Systematic Theology (God, Christ, 

Church, Eucharist, Eschatology) 6 hours 

Scripture 6 hours 

Area of Concentration 18 hours 

Electives 12 hours 

Integrative Areas: 9 hours 

Nine hours are required in the integrative area. Three of these 
hours are to be completed in the first year of residency, ordinarily 
through the M.T.S. Colloquium. These hours are meant to aid the 
candidates in reflecting upon their previous ministerial experience. 

Three hours are to be done in the second year, to serve as a focus 
for a fuller integration of pastoral skills, theological reflection and 
ministerial experience. 

The final three hours are granted for the M.T.S. project, which 
is oriented to the candidate's projected area of pastoral ministry and 
is completed under the supervision of faculty in the appropriate area. 
The project may be done in conjunction with the second integrating 

Since the M.T.S. program allows for a great deal of individualization, 
programs for M.T.S. students will be developed in consultation with the 
student and appropriate faculty in the projected area of pastoral skill. 

Track II 

Specific hour requirements fall into three areas: foundational, 
theological/pastoral, and integrative areas. 

Foundational Areas: 21 hours 

The foundational areas are meant to provide some grounding in 
the major theological disciplines. They consist of twenty-one hours. 
Equivalency may be granted for this work if similar work has been 
done on an advanced level (i.e., upper level college or at another 
theological school). Work in the foundational areas must be 
completed during the first year of residency. The foundational areas 

Introduction to the Old Testament 3 hours 

Introduction to the New Testament 3 hours 

History of Early Christianity 3 hours 

Introduction to Theology 3 hours 

Introduction to Christian Ethics 3 hours 

Introduction to Social Ethics 3 hours 


Sacraments: Theology and Celebration 3 hours 

Theological/ Pastoral Areas: 39 hours 

The theological/pastoral areas provide work in selected areas of 
pastoral skills within the context of further theological 
understanding. Thirty-nine hours are required in this area, to be 
distributed in the following manner: 

Systematic Theology 

9 hours 

(God, Christology, Ecclesiology) 


3 hours 


3 hours 


3 hours 

Area of Concentration 

18 hours 


3 hours 

Integrative Areas: 12 hours 

Twelve hours are required in the integrative area. Nine of these 
hours are to be completed in the first year of residency, ordinarily 
through the Ministry Practicum I. These hours are meant to aid 
the candidates in reflecting upon their ministerial experience with 
a supervisor and theological reflection seminar groups. 

The final three hours are granted for the M.T.S. project, which 
is oriented to the candidate's projected area of pastoral ministry and 
is completed under the supervision of faculty in the appropriate area. 

Language Requirement 

There are no language requirements as such for the MT.S., although 
language competencies may be required for entry into certain courses. 


The M.T.S. Program is directed and administered by Rev. Francis S. 
Tebbe, O.F.M. Further regulations for the M.T.S. program are found in 
the M.T.S. Manual. 


By a special arrangement with the University of Chicago, select M.Div. 
students from Catholic Theological Union may pursue a coordinated 
sequence of programs leading to the M.Div. degree at Catholic Theological 
Union and the Ph.D. degree at the University of Chicago Divinity School. 

Upon receiving written approval of the Academic Dean of Catholic 


Theological Union, the student may enter this sequence. While pursuing 
the regular course of study in the M.Div. program, the student prepares 
for the three Certifying Examinations and writes an essay on religious 
studies in the modern world. These requirements constitute the 
preliminary phase of doctoral study at the University. The Certifying 
Examinations cover the following areas: Sacred Scriptures of Judaism, 
Christianity and Islam; Western Religious Traditions to 1500; and Religion 
in the West, 1500-1900. 

Each year the Divinity School faculty selects a particular topic for the 
essay in religious studies. The school also offers a two course sequence 
annually in preparation for this essay. Students are encouraged, but not 
required, to take this sequence. 

Application for the Ph.D. program includes completing at least two 
quarters of bi-registration at the University, enrolling in at least two 
400-level courses at the University of Chicago Divinity School; successful 
completion of the three Certifying Examinations; successful completion of 
the essay and successful completiton of a French or German foreign 
language examination, administered by the University of Chicago. 

M.Div. students may apply for the Ph.D. program when they have 
completed the requirements above and have completed two years of the 
M.Div. program. Application to the Ph.D. program does not constitute 
admission. Applications from this sequence will be considered along with 
other applications to the Ph.D. programs in the Divinity School. If 
accepted, the student matriculates into the Ph.D. program within one 
year, and takes at least two courses in that program thereafter until 
admitted to Ph.D. candidacy. If rejected, the student may apply for a 
terminal M.A. in the University, if the regular curricular and financial 
obligations are met. 

Students must complete the M.Div. before the Ph.D. can be awarded. 
The student may petition to have a faculty member from Catholic 
Theological Union serve as an additional examiner in the oral portion of 
the Qualifying Examinations, and also serve as a member of the 
dissertation reading committee. 

Students may apply credit received in University courses to the M.Div. 
degree in the usual arrangement with neighboring institutions. Successful 
completion of the Certifying Examinations and essay may be substituted 
for the Pastoral Mission Statement in the M.Div. Resume. Choice of 
elective courses and the field of doctoral study may make some adjustment 
in M.Div. course distribution requirements plausible. In such cases, the 
student may petition the M.Div. Director for such adjustments. These 
can be made by the M.Div. Director after consultation with the Dean and 
appropriate departments. 


Further details on this sequence may be obtained from the Dean's 
Office. More information on Ph.D. programs at the University of Chicago 
Divinity School may be found in the current issue of its Announcements. 


The World Mission Program at Catholic Theological Union has been 
developed to allow students to choose a specific mission focus in any of 
the various degree programs offered by the school, namely, M.Div., M.A., 
and M.T.S., as well as to meet the needs of furloughed and returned 
missionaries who come to the school for one or more terms of continuing 
education. It also challenges all theological education at Catholic 
Theological Union with the reality of cultural and religious pluralism and 
the awareness of an existing global Church. 

The world mission of the Church has entered a new era. The Church 
today must seek to be faithful to the mission of Christ in the midst of vast 
social and economic changes among the peoples of the world who struggle 
to remain faithful to their own cultural and religious heritage. The mission 
of the Church needs apostles who are persons of dialogue — who are able 
to live maturely between different cultural worlds; who seek not only to 
give but to receive, not only to lead but to assist; who call to conversion, 
but are also ready to undergo conversion; who, in inviting all peoples to 
the community of those who profess Jesus as their Savior, want to respect 
other churches and other religions in their own proper development. With 
such apostles the Church will become truly ecumenical and will become 
a sign and instrument of reconciliation and peace in Christ Jesus. 

It is with this awareness that Catholic Theological Union has shaped 
its World Mission Program. It has organized biblical, historical, 
systematic, and ethical courses with mission as their focus and/or content. 
It has created a specialized intensive course to help people prepare for 
cross-cultural ministry and a Mission Integration Seminar to aid returned 
missionaries process their experience abroad and their reentry. It has 
sought out pastoral placements most suitable for reflection on the Church's 

The World Mission Program at Catholic Theological Union is 
supervised and developed by the interdepartmental Committee on World 
Mission. In this they are aided by annual meetings of the Mission Advisory 
Council, which represents the interests of the school's various 

All degree programs are available with a mission specialization. The 
requirements for each are as follows: 


Master of Divinity in Theology with Mission Specialization 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the M.Div. degree 
above, with the following specifications: 

— forty-five hours (fifteen courses) in the M.Div. Program must 
be taken with mission specialization. These must ordinarily 
include 1-460: Training for Cross-Cultural Ministry. 

— an Overseas Training Program approved by Catholic 
Theological Union may be substituted for Ministry Practicum 
II. Students taking the Practicum do it with a cross-cultural 

Master of Arts in Theology 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the M.A. above. The 
eight advanced level courses taken as specialization are in the area 
of mission specialization. 

Master of Theological Studies 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the M.T.S. above. 
The area of concentration must be in mission specialization. 

The courses offered by Catholic Theological Union which are considered 
mission specialization are listed each year and are available on request. 

Catholic Theological Union carries out its World Mission Program in 
cooperation with the Association of Chicago Theological Schools which 
guarantees a broad theological and ecumenical environment. Together 
the schools participate in planning and sponsoring various workshops and 
meetings on current mission and international problems as well as the 
annual World Mission Institute.

The Bible is not just a collection of ancient writings, but a major 
component in the contemporary formation of faith, a part of the living 
process of communication and interpretation of divine revelation. For this 
reason, students pursuing the Master of Divinity degree or other degrees 
are able to specialize in Bible with a view to developing a biblical approach 
in spirituality and ministry. 


Master of Divinity with Bible Specialization 

General biblical requirements are the same as those listed for the 
M.Div. degree above. In addition, specialization in the biblical field 
is acquired as follows: 

— With advisement from the department, at least three of the 
general electives are to be taken in the biblical field, preferably 
on the 500 level. 

— Two other supporting courses from the general M.Div. 
curriculum are to be taken with projects in the biblical 
dimensions of the area of study. 

— Participation in either the Spring or Fall Israel Study program 
is normally required as an integral part of the M.Div. 

— With advisement from the department, students are strongly 
urged to include the following among their biblical courses: 

a) A course in a biblical language. 

b) A course in Rabbinic Judaism. 

— Through appropriate advisement, the Ministry Practicum II 
will be so structured that the Bible can be used in an explicit 
way, e.g., in preaching or teaching ministries. 

Other Programs 

The Master of Arts in Theology, the Master of Theological Studies, 
and the Certificate in Pastoral Studies may also be taken with concentration 
in Bible. For details, see explanations under these degree programs. 



Word and Worship is a concentration in preaching and pastoral liturgy 
within the M.Div., M.T.S., and Certificate programs. It seeks to combine 
a theological understanding of preaching and liturgy with skills both in 
exercising these ministries and in preparing others for them. It enables 
the student to integrate the study and practice of liturgy and preaching 
within a larger context of theology and pastoral care. 

Individual students work with a word/worship advisor to plan the 
specific content of their program in keeping with their background and 
future ministerial goals. In addition to Catholic Theological Union's course 
offerings, students working in Word and W'orship programs have access 
to a wide variety of course offerings in preaching and liturgy in neighboring 
schools. The Chicago area also provides many related resources and field 
sites for developing skills in word and worship. The program options and 
the word/worship requirements are as follows: 

Master of Divinity 

with Word and Worship Specialization 

General requirements are the same as those listed above for the M.Div. 
program. These include required course in liturgy, sacraments, 
sacramental law and preaching as well as the required general 
competencies in word and worship. 

Specialization in Word and Worship is achieved by these further 
specifications of the regular M.Div. requirements" 

— Three general electives from the M.Div. program are to be taken 
in the word/worship area. 

— In two other supporting courses students are to relate their course 
work to word/worship. 

— A word/worship placement is to be chosen for the Ministry 
Practicum II required of all M.Div. students. This practicum, in 
conjunction with the above courses, helps students acquire the 
special competencies in word and worship. 

Master of Theological Studies 

Requirements are the same as those listed above for the M.T.S. program. 
The eighteen hours in the area of concentration are selected from course 
offerings in Word and Worship. 


Certificate in Pastoral Studies 

A more limited Word and Worship concentration can be developed 
within this program in consultation with the advisor, provided that the 
student can demonstrate adequate previous theological preparation for 
undertaking such study. 

Master of Arts in Theology 

In addition to the above pastoral concentrations and specialization in 
Word and W T orship, Catholic Theological Union offers a Master of Arts 
in Theology program in which a student can concentrate in liturgical 
studies. Requirements are the same as those listed above for the M.A. 
program. Eight upper division courses must be taken in the area of liturgy 
and preaching. 

Course offerings in Word and Worship are listed together in the section 
on Course Offerings below. Additional electives include interdisciplinary 
courses in Scripture, Ethics, Mission, Pastoral Care and other disciplines. 
A listing of suitable electives outside the Department of Word and Worship 
is available annually. 

Further details on Word and Worship Programs may be obtained from 
the Office of the Dean or from the Chairperson of the Department of Word 
and Worship. 


The Hispanic Ministry Program provides theological education through 
courses which are historically, culturally, and religiously grounded in the 
Hispanic context and experience. It supports these efforts with additional 
educational opportunities such as seminars, workshops, community 
dialogue and other special events. The program is developed in cooperation 
with Ecumenical Hispanic Resources Committee of the Committee on 
Academic Cooperation in Hyde Park and with other centers in the Chicago 

Begun in 1982, the Hispanic Ministry Program is directed toward 
Hispanic and non-Hispanic persons interested in ministry with Hispanic 
communities. The program provides contact with the Hispanic experience 
and tradition of the Catholic Church in the United States. Courses are 
open to all students.

Aim of the Program 

The aim of the Certificate in Pastoral Studies is to provide an opportunity 
to develop a program of study either to enhance one's effectiveness in 
one's current ministry or to prepare for another ministry. It is especially 
designed as a program for continuing education. 

Admission Requirements 

There are no special requirements beyond the general admission 
requirements. Preference is given to persons with experience in ministry, 

Program Requirements 

The Certificate in Pastoral Studies consists of thirty-six quarter hours 
(twelve courses), the equivalent of one year's work at Catholic Theological 
Union. Selection of courses in the Certificate is made on the basis of the 
candidate's interest and need. Candidates may avail themselves of the 
courses offered at Catholic Theological Union including its field programs 
and courses in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools. There is 
no language requirement. 


The Certificate in Pastoral Studies is administered by Rev. Francis S. 
Tebbe, O.F.M., to whom inquiries may be directed. 



Educating capable ministers for the present and future Church involves 
working with those entering ministry for the first time. In a particular 
way, it also involves offering opportunities for lifelong professional 
development to persons already engaged in ministry. 

There are a variety of graduate level sabbatical/continuing education 
opportunities available at CTU for women and men in ministry. All of 
these experiences seek to enrich and integrate the person's spirituality, 
ministerial skills, and life experience. 

Sabbatical Quarter(s) 

Sabbatical Quarter(s) Study is individually designed and allows a person 
to concentrate in a specific theological/pastoral area of interest by means 
of course work, personal reading, cultural enrichment, spiritual 
development, and leisure. 

Those who come to CTU for a sabbatical will receive: (1) advisement for 
program and course selection in light of their personal and ministerial 
goals; (2) suggestions for workshop participation; (3) recommendations 
regarding spiritual directors; (4) services of advisors, faculty and staff; 
and (5) related information about numerous opportunities in Chicago. 


The Director of Continuing Education serves as coordinator of the 
Sabbatical Study and as advisor in course selection and in the process of 
registration. Faculty members also serve as resources for participants. 


Participants in all the sabbatical opportunities [degree and non-degree] 
are expected to have a bachelor's degree or its equivalent. 

Regular admission procedures apply to all who seek to enroll at C.T.U. 


Participants may choose to take courses for credit or audit. There are 
several options available regarding housing, meal plans, and tuition [credit 
or audit] costs. 

Those who enroll for one to three quarters in Sabbatical Study will meet 
bi-weekly for an integrative seminar to reflect upon their study and 
experiences. Also, occasional dialogue sessions will be scheduled with 
faculty members. 


Continuing Education Opportunities 

Options available to Sabbatical/Continuing Education students are the 

The Summer Institute is a three week opportunity offered each summer. 
It is designed for the continuing professional development of those in 
ministry. Six one-week modules are available. 

The Master of Theological Studies Degree is a two-year program 
designed for persons who seek a degree to enhance their effectiveness in 
their current ministry or who wish to prepare for a new ministry. 

The Certificate in Pastoral Studies is a one-year plan of studies, 
individually designed to meet particular needs, allowing a person to enroll 
in twelve courses. 

The Certificate in Biblical Spirituality is a one-year plan of studies 
designed for those seeking a fuller and deeper appreciation of the Bible. 
One quarter is spent in Israel. 

The Fall Quarter Israel Study is a ten-week program especially designed 
for those wishing an experience of studying the Bible in context. 

Studies in World Mission provide missionaries and those from the Third 
World the opportunity to process their mission experience, update their 
theological education, and get in touch with major trends in Church life 
in the United States. 

Studies in Word and Worship offer presiders, teachers, directors of 
liturgy and other pastoral ministers courses to enrich their theological and 
educational background and pastoral practice. 

Studies in Eastern Christianity enable students to expand and enrich 
their cross-cultural awareness of Eastern Catholic Churches. A summer 
intensive at an Eastern Catholic monastery in Northern California provides 
a lived experience of Eastern Christian spirituality. 

Personal Enrichment Study for one year on a credit or non-credit basis 
is also available. 

Further information on continuing education for ministry opportunities 
can be obtained by contacting Francis S. Tebbe, O.F.M., Director of 
Continuing Education. 



The Biblical Spirituality Program is a one year certificate program, 
concentrating upon the Bible, in which class lectures, seminar discussion, 
study and prayer center upon the Bible as the common basis of Christian 
living and Christian mission. During the Fall Quarter the Bible will be 
explored from the vantage point of the land of Israel where the participants 
will join Catholic Theological Union's Israel Study Program. This is 
followed by a re-entry seminar and retreat in Chicago. The Winter and 
Spring Quarters at Catholic Theological Union enable students not only 
to choose from extensive offerings in the Bible department, but also to 
draw upon biblically related courses in other departments. The program 
blends academic, liturgical and recreational facets. With thirty-six credit 
hours (twelve courses) a Certificate in Biblical Spirituality is awarded. 
Students may extend their study at Catholic Theological Union for an 
additional year to earn the degree of Master of Theological Studies. 
Further information is available from Joann Gehling, F.S.P.A., Director 
of the Biblical Spirituality Program. 


Catholic Theological Union offers a number of opportunities for study 
outside the Chicago area and internationally. These include: 

The National Capital Semester Program for Seminarians 

Catholic Theological Union participates in the National Capital 
Semester Program for Seminarians (NCSS), directed by Wesley 
Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C. Students spend a semester 
focusing upon public policy and theology in Washington, through study, 
reflection, direct political interaction, and encounter with persons involved 
in the political process. 

Further details may be obtained from the M.Div. Director, who also 
administers the program. 

United Nations and World Faiths

Sheptytsky Institute in Eastern Christian Studies at Mt. Tabor 

Catholic Theological Union offers students the opportunity to integrate 
study of the theology, liturgy, and spirituality of the Christian East with 
a lived experience of what Eastern Christians look upon as the summit of 
their spiritual tradition, namely monasticism. This is achieved through 
Catholic Theological Union's Sheptytsky Institute at Mt. Tabor, an annual 
summer intensive at Holy Transfiguration Monastery in California. 

Students can earn six quarter credits applicable to M.Div., M.A. and 
M.T.S. requirements. The summer intensive normally consists of a 
monthlong stay at the Ukrainian Catholic Monastery of the Holy 
Transfiguration (Mt. Tabor) in Redwood Valley, California, where 
participants enter as fully as possible into the life of the monks. This 
includes adherence to the full schedule of personal prayer and fasting, as 
well as participation in four to five hours of liturgy a day. In addition, 
participants attend two three-credit courses in Eastern Theology, 
spirituality and liturgy. A field trip to San Francisco is included, with 
visits to local Eastern parishes, both Orthodox and Catholic. At the 
conclusion of the intensive program, a debriefing seminar is held at a 
retreat center near San Francisco, so as to facilitate re-entry into "the 
world" from the monastic experience. 

Holy Transfiguration Monastery is located two and one-half hours north 
of San Francisco in the scenic Coastal Range mountains of Northern 
California. It is the home of a dozen monks, and is gaining a reputation 
as a center for authentically Eastern spirituality throughout North 
America. Worship is conducted in English, following the Byzantine- 
Ukrainian usage. While Mt. Tabor is a men's monastery, both men and 
women are welcome in the summer intensive of the Sheptytsky Institute. 

The program is named after the Servant of God Metropolitan Andrey 
Sheptytsky ( -I- 1944), primate of the Ukrainian Catholic Church, pioneer 
of East-West ecumenism, and restorer of the pristine heritage of the 
Ukrainian Church. 

The Director of the Sheptytsky Institute in Eastern Christian Studies 
at Mt. Tabor is Fr. Andriy Chirovsky. Further details can be obtained 
from his office. 


Israel Study Programs 

Catholic Theological Union offers two special programs which combine 
scripture study and travel in the biblical lands. 

Each Fall there is a quarter-length program involving lectures on 
Scripture and guided exploration of biblical sites in Greece, Turkey, Israel 
and Egypt. A re-entry seminar/retreat is conducted at Catholic Theological 
Union at the conclusion of the program to help participants relate their 
overseas experience to theology, spirituality and ministry. Students may 
earn up to twelve quarter hours of credit applicable to M.Div., M.A. and 
M.T.S. requirements. The overseas course work concentrates on the 
History and Archaeology of Israel and on a variety of Old and New 
Testament traditions. The 1989 program will be conducted by Leslie 
Hoppe, O.F.M., Carolyn Osiek, R.S.C.J., and Joann Gehling, F.S.P.A. 

Every other Spring Catholic Theological Union offers a three week 
intensive in Israel, during the latter part of the quarter. The next program 
will be in the Spring of 1991. For the first seven weeks of the quarter 
students may take at Catholic Theological Union two full quarter scripture 
courses designed to be completed during that time frame; a third course 
(B475 History and Archaeology of Israel) will also run seven weeks and 
will serve as direct preparation for the overseas intensive. During the three 
weeks in Israel students will have guided tours of major biblical sites. 
Participation in the intensive can earn three quarter credits; the entire 
Spring program (the three courses plus the intensive) gives twelve quarter 
credits applicable toward degree requirements. 


On both the Fall and Spring programs students are accompanied by 
biblical faculty from Catholic Theological Union; the programs also draw 
on expert resource people overseas. 

The Director of the Israel Study Programs is Joann Gehling, F.S.P.A. 
Further details can be obtained from her office.
